adrift

adrift is set fifty years in the future, when the entire population of the island nation of Tuvalu has been forced to relocate due to rising water levels, a result of global warming and the Tuvalse have commissioned a high-density arcology on the banks of the Mississippi river. The story references both Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn and Kobo Abé’s early science fiction novel Inter Ice Age 4 (Dai-Yon Kampyōki). It was shot both in Tuvalu and at Bertrand Goldberg’s architecturally renowned River City complex in Chicago.

Hartt’s work addresses ideology and the built environment, and in adrift, Hartt explores what happens to a people when that environment disappears, specifically through notions of sovereignty in the twenty-first century, both virtual and physical.
